West Virginia opened the contest with a 101-second touchdown drive that was capped by a 59-yard connection between JT Daniels and Sam James. KU was then called for three penalties in the span of seven plays and had to punt the ball away. West Virginia responded with another touchdown drive that lasted 12 plays and traveled 60 yards to take a 14-0 lead.

Houston, on the other hand, will enter Saturday’s contest off the back of a 33-30 double-overtime loss to Texas Tech on the road. The Cougars now sit at 1-1 after the first two weeks of the season.
